Chris Schmidt is the new dog park chair for 2016. She and her husband Mike have been diligently working to improve the physical environment of the dog park. You may have noticed the brush along the south and east fence lines has been removed and the trees and bushes trimmed. You may thank the Schmidts for all this hard work. Chris is planning a series of events in the dog park for 2016 to create a stronger sense of community and more opportuities for our dogs to socialize with other pups.
